We haven’t covered a decent Lockscreen app for Windows Phone in a few weeks, so today seems like a good day to do so. Considering the Lockscreen is the first thing you see when turning on your device, what you put there can be pretty important. Luckily today we have another app to add to the bunch, and it’s aptly called ‘Lock pic’.
Lock pic is made by developer Matt ‘RogueCode’ Cavanagh who is a familiar name for many Windows Phone users. He’s the guy behind the hit game VALA: Alpha, MyEdit, our favorite Ffffound app and numerous other hacks including this cool Cortana one using lights. Now he’s added Lock pic to his collection and it’s a solid looking app.
Lock pic has one function: update your Lockscreen with new photos every 30 minutes. There’s more to it than that as sourcing for images, updating frequency and even ‘only over Wi-Fi’ are also included features. Here is what Lock pic can do:
- Photo sources – Bing, Flickr, Bing Image of the Day, NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day, and your photos
- Update intervals – 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, 12 hours, once per day
- Blur entire image
- Add overlay behind text on Lockscreen
- Blur the overlay
The app does what it says, delivering frequent, and highly customized Lock screen images. For Bing, you can designate a specific search like ‘blue wallpaper’ and it will cycle through those, or you can use the very popular images from your Photos hub option.
Lock pic is free, and if you’re new to Windows Phone and need something to help keep your Lock screen unique and new, you should go pick it up here in the Store. Windows Phone 8.0/8.1 only
